This 1983 Terry Labonte/Budweiser car is not one of those mass produced diecast,This is a one of a kind made by yours truly.This Diecast was never made,so i bought the decals and made it myself.Tell me what you think!
1983 WINSTON CUP STOCK CAR
I TOOK A DONAR 83 CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO,SANDED IT DOWN,PRIMED THE BARE METAL AREAS,SCUFFED THE WHOLE CAR.THEN I SPRAYED THE RED FIRST,THEN I TAPED OFF THE AREA OF THE CAR THAT WANTED TO PAINT WHITE.PAINTED IT WHITE,THEN I PUT MY WATER SLIDE DECALS ON,POSITIONING THEM FROM A PICTURE I HAVE OF TERRY LABONTE'S/BUDWEISER CAR FROM 1983.I LET THE CAR COMPLETELY SIT FOR 2 DAYS,THEN I SPRAYED 3 COATS OF CLEAR TO SEAL IN THE DECALS,THIS SHOULD KEEP THE DECALS LOOKING AWESOME FOR MANY,MANY YEARS TO COME WITH NO WORRIES OF YELLOWING OR PEELING AFTER A FEW YEARS.THEN I WORKED ON THE ROLL CAGE AND CHASIS BARS,MAKING SURE I PAINTED THESE AREAS RED AND WHITE AS WELL.I WAITED ANOTHER DAY MAKING SURE EVERYTHING WAS NICE AND DRY,THEN I PUT THE HOOD,TRUNK,FRONT AND REAR WINDOWS BACK IN AND SECURED EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER WITH THE ORIGINAL SCREWS.I TOOK MY TIME,MADE SURE EVERYTHING WAS RIGHT AND I FEEL THE END RESULT SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.I REALLY ENJOYED MAKING THIS CAR,I HAVE PLANS ON MAKING MANY MORE.THANKS FOR LOOKING,I APPRECIATE ANY AND ALL COMMENTS. THANKS! SERG
